PLEASE SOMEONE HELP

The need for a Westbury A350 Bypass is already well known and the route to obtaining funding is already identified. I wrote about it in this forum only a few months ago.

There is no need for any campaign. Both Wiltshire Council and Westbury Town Council are on the case. It is simply a matter of waiting for government money to fall into place after the proposed new Melksham bypass is underway.

As I said before, the first bit of funding should occur within about 2 - 3 years which will allow the analysis and consultation stage to start by looking at all possible routes to identify the feasible options.

I think we are singing from the same hymn sheet here, Russell.
 I well remember the earlier  bypass fiasco, and even the previous incarnation  around 1978/79 of  what was then called the West Wilts Bypass, from Standerwick to Yarnbrook, as part of an integrated transport plan for the routes from the South Coast to the M4.  Sadly, only piecemeal elements of that ever happened.
 I will refrain from name-calling, but was ironic that one of the main objectors to the last scheme came from a town which already had already been bypassed.
It is just a shame that we have to wait for funding to carry out studies and consultation which as you state above, will most likely identify the  route which was proposed before.

Not only that he lived in a road that benefited greatly from the by-pass.

The West Wilts by-pass you described is probably the best (but not cheapest) option.
